TRAVELLING TO THE MOON
"Travelling to the moon is a boom compatible map that was designed in about 5 months (maybe a bit more) and it is a rather large map
(it was intended to be short/medium at first though). It is a map I made as a breather from my "fortress of misery" map and
well, let's just say that it took the forground rather quickly.
In terms of difficulty, I'd say it is rather hard yet manageable."
Advanced engine needed : PRBOOM+ at the least (tested with), I suppose zdoom/gzdoom is also fine
Primary purpose : Single player

Known Bugs : None gamebreaking (afaik) and maybe a few slimetrails here and there (got rid of most of them though, hopefully)
May Not Run With... : Should run with gameplay mods as nothing new (as in weapons, monsters, etc...) were added although, some oddities were found while playing in brutal
doom (monsters teleporting in when they shouldn't for example). Also, since some areas have quite a high density of monsters, it may not perform well with brutal doom.
Should be perfectly fine with smoothdoom though.
* Aditional notes *
This map was tested primarilly with prboom+ during the making. It runs ok in zdoom/gzdoom but they aren't the intended ports.
The map has 2 different musics depending on what port you play it with. If you use prboom+, you will hear "voyage" by jimmy (default) and if you play with ports that support
mapinfo, you will hear "unfinished cathedral" (yes I know, completely pointless but heh, I like pointless stuff).
Also, jumping and crouching is disabled by default and it should stay that way. The map was not designed for ports that allow these so if you encounter bugs that are the result
of you jumping and crouching around, I will not be responsable. You are warned ;)
-Fixed one secret wall that I accidently left lowered the whole time
-Added a secret teleporter in coop
-Minor changes (automap cleanup, etc...)
-Moved all used textures (from cc4) in the main file so it should run without the need of adding cc4-tex.wad
-Changed some small things here and there (mainly textures)
-Slight modification to the RK fight
-Removed some cacos and a rev row (that rev row was moved to coop) in the YK fight
